Thylacines in Iran

In my referrer logs I found a fascinating search query involving thylacines in Iran. The thylacine, also known as the Tasmanian tiger, is thought to be extinct. It never lived in Iran. It was native to Tasmania and, in the more distant past, Australia. What could the author of this query have had in mind? Secret private zoos in Iran housing thylacines and other extict species, keeping them hidden away from the world? A further look at the query reveals that it originated from bop.gov, the Department of Justice's Federal Bureau of Prisons. From which side of the bars did the query originate?
